On November 6th 2017, version 2 of Go Live Update Urls PRO was released to the general public. This version was a complete refactor of the code base with the intention of making the plugin more extendable and stable for future enhancements. This version removed the static form in favor of an interactive ReactJS driven admin section. At the time of launch I vowed to use this new structure to build and release new features faster with less bugs. I’m very pleased to announce that since release I have kept this vow!
I have received an enormous amount of positive feedback from Version 2 as well as many suggestions for enhancements. This release included some highly requested features including (but not limited to) the following:
A commonly used workflow is to update the domain of your site using General Settings then head over to Go Live to change all the site content. Now this process is virtually one-click because the Old URL and New URL will automatically be filled out for you. Click submit and you are done. No more guessing and no more typos. Switching your site with this plugin used to take 30 seconds, now it takes 5.
Site Address History
Once this plugin is activated, all changes you make to your Site Address (URL) via general settings or Go Live will be tracked. A simple icon next to the Old URL field opens up a report of all the changes to your site’s URL. Next to each change you are given a button to “Use” this change as your old and new URL values.
